What slump? Let's look at pictures instead!

Happy Friday everyone!

I am in a weird reading phase right now. I wouldn't exactly call it a slump, but I am just not enjoying what I am reading. It's not that the books are bad. I just can't get into them. I am reading Blondes by Emily Schultz right now and this book seemed right up my alley. I hope I get into it more as I continue reading it. Right now, I am just . . . eh.

Good thing I had some blog posts scheduled because I am kind of feeling out of sorts with that too. It happens. I just need a mental break.

So instead of talking about books today, I will look at these pictures of my recent trip with my husband to the Amalfi Coast.

I am so thankful to live in a place of such beauty. If my husband hadn't gotten a job with the Navy base here in Naples, I never would have seen this place.

And that would have been a shame.

Can you believe that I had never even heard of the Amalfi Coast until last year when we moved here?



So far, the Amalfi Coast is without a doubt the most beautiful part of Italy.

And it's only an hour away from Naples!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  6. Mental breaks are good! I just had one this past week (Spring break) :P I can't seem to put my finger on why it's an incredibly guilty feeling though! I managed to toss the guilt away though; my kiddos are so worth it!

    Which, by the way, exploring Italy is totally worth it! ;)

  10. I love the Amalfi Coast but you need nerves of steel when you are driving on the edge of the cliff! So scary! Hope your reading and blogging slump passes soon.

    1. Oh you are so right Trish. My husband does the driving along those roads. The first time we did it, I had to close my eyes. Ha. But that is just part of the experience. :)
